The Monaco F1 2015 was restarted with eight laps to go, Hamilton was all set to win leading from pole, but a strategic error by his Mercedes team, handed Nico Rosberg the win.
This is a joke, once again #Hamilton has been robbed. Every year this happens and he has to fight for his title all by himself

Team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel did not stop and passed Hamilton before he rejoined.
“We’ve lost this, haven’t we?” Hamilton said on the team radio, as he was unable to regain the position.Hamilton said after the race, “I can’t really express how I feel so I won’t even attempt to.” “You live to fight another day.
“I’m sure we will sit down afterwards and try to think of ways we can improve. I’ll come back to win the next one.”

Hamilton is not only a crowd Favorite but also loved by the F1 Boss Ecclestone who told Formula1.com, “Generally I still believe that Lewis is the best champion that we have had in a long, long time. “He manages to get to all different walks of life: red carpet, fashion, business and music, you name it. “From a pure business aspect — sorry Nico if I have to say this — you are not so good for my business. “As the cancellation of the German Grand Prix indicates, Germany is a terrible market for Formula 1. On the contrary Lewis is a hero in the UK.”
